I started with the Auxiliary in July 2014, and I’ve been working at the Mission Hospital in the Loan Cupboard for almost 2 years. I also help out at Reception.
The Loan Cupboard lends out equipment to assist people needing extra support after surgery and/or illness. The Reception Desk helps people locate various departments within the Hospital, and answer people’s questions and concerns.
I’ve lived in Mission for almost 3 years. My husband and I lived in Asia for 5 years before that.
As well as volunteering with the Mission Hospital Auxiliary, I volunteer with the Abbotsford Healthy Aging Programme, and at the Clarke Foundation Theatre in Mission. I am a member of the “Friends of the Library”, the Mission Gardening Club and a local walking group which keeps me busy and, hopefully, healthy!
